    Bad Cat - Sampson Era Questions

    Cool. Posted a similar question in the Bad Cat mega thread. I was told 2000-2001, as these were the years he was with the company. I was curious if the Sampson era extended beyond his years at Bad Cat. So, was the Sampson Era the years he was with Bad Cat or the years his Black Cat model...

    The Official BAD CAT Thread

    Is there a definitive answer to this question: What years are “the Sampson era?” From what I understand he left the company in 2001, so 2000 to 2001 would be his time in the company. Does the Sampson era extend to hose yeats that he was not with Bad Cat? I’m told the very first prototypes...

    Yeah, I owned a '55 wrap tail custom reissue with P90s. Great guitar!

    Randy Rhoads Les Paul question

    It must've been tough for someone of slight stature to gig a 10 lb. beast of a boat anchor like a Norlin-era LPC.

    Not familiar with the low power k60. Is that a previous model? What are the specs?

    Randy Rhoads Les Paul question

    I’ve always read that Rhoads played a ‘74 LPC. I’m sure there’s tons of info on the internet on his guitars.

    "Star" bodies

    I know a couple of after-market builders offer this style. Check out KnE guitar bodies. He does the exact Charvel spec. Also, Chris Holmes from WASP had several very cool star Charvels and Jackson’s.

    Leo Scala Guitars

    Same. I contacted him years ago about making me one like Pete Thorn’s. Super, mega, expensive and no way I could swing it. A buddy of mine had a Scala T-rod tele and it was awesome. These Vs look pretty sweet too.

    NGD: Gibson Les Paul Custom

    Wow, I had no idea those inlays were even an option on the LPC!!

    Komet Amp Thread

    I’ll definitely post some impressions. Thinking about all my tube amps, and there are a lot of them, the K60HD is particularly sensitive to preamp tubes swaps. More so than all my other amps. What I find curious is that overwhelmingly so, most guys talk about and revere the legendary European...

    What is your "vacation" rig this summer?

    When going to the beach, I take my Strandberg and Line 6 POD-x thingy with headphones. Perfect, lightweight, compact, and sounds good for my travel purposes.

    Not exactly a mascot, but how about a hero in my jam room. Oh yeah, matching amp too...

    What Are Your "Perfect" Albums?

    I consider each of these three to be perfection. Among my favorites ever made. They all have something in common, can you guess?

    Do you consider "Achilles Last Stand" to be a TOP-TIER Zeppelin song?

    Absolutely one of their high points. I always felt like that song had some good prog vibes going on, which is great IMHO.

    Tell me about Strandberg?

    I've been interested in getting one with a rosewood or ebony board, as I already have a roasted maple board OS6. I've been interested mostly in the Salen. It looks like there are two types with a pao ferro board- Red with the sound hole and without. I'd be interested in hearing opinions on those...

    The Mars Volta reforming?

    Listening to Bedlam this afternoon. I gotta admit…It’s as strong as Frances and almost as much as Deloused.

    New King's X! Let it Rain

    That was great. Loved the effect on the solo, whatever it was.

    Yngwie Malmsteen "Rising Force" cover - Superbly done!

    Wow, that was really good! Kinda think the guitarist should be playing a strat, however...or at least a guitar with single coils.
